BOOK REVIEW: All The King’s Horses by Carla Robinson

As usual, I like to start by explaining where I got this book.  Well… I got All the King’s Horses from Carla Robinson! No matter the circumstances, getting a book from the author is always special.  Whether a Kindle giveaway or a messy pile of papers, I get a little thrill when a creator gives … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: All The King’s Horses by Carla Robinson

BOOK REVIEW: Delavier’s Women’s Strength Training Anatomy Workouts by Frédéric Delavier & Michael Gundill

I spotted Delavier’s Women’s Strength Training Anatomy Workouts, alongside Delavier’s Stretching Anatomy on Amazon.  My friend, Ellen, saw them on my Amazon Wishlist and got them for me to fuel my fitness fanaticism. Let’s be real – reading about getting fit is easier than doing it.  So, I really appreciated getting this book! Regrettably, I … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Delavier’s Women’s Strength Training Anatomy Workouts by Frédéric Delavier & Michael Gundill

BOOK REVIEW: Hocus Pocus: Titania’s Book of Spells by Titania Hardie

I’m so glad I bought this book when I was a teenager.  I’d be so embarrassed if someone saw me buying it now. Not because I’m ashamed of the subject matter, mind you.  I’m still interested and, yes, even charmed (😉) by the practices of Wicca and paganism.  No, I’d be ashamed if I were … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: Hocus Pocus: Titania’s Book of Spells by Titania Hardie

BOOK REVIEW: The Science Fiction Century ed, by David G. Hartwell

Hmm.  I can’t, for the life of me, remember how I got this book.  Clearly, it was well-read and well-loved before I got it.  It was missing its dust cover, and had some water damage, but it was readable. It’s possible I got The Science Fiction Century from the “Take a Book/Leave a Book” spot … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Science Fiction Century ed, by David G. Hartwell

I Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself! – Becoming by Michelle Obama

Becoming, by Michelle Obama, deserves a post dedicated to profound quotations.  Maybe several posts.  This is gonna get long.  (Worth it.) I’m going to add some thoughts, if I have them, after the quotations.  My thoughts will be the text … not in quotation marks.  Oh, what the heck!  I’ll put them in italics too, … Continue reading I Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself! – Becoming by Michelle Obama

BOOK REVIEW: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain (With a New Introduction by Shelley Fisher Fishkin) – Huck Finn

All I knew before reading Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was that it was controversial.  It was on a lot of lists of books banned by school boards and libraries, nationwide.  Thankfully, Shelley Fisher Fishkin’s introduction clarifies why she believes this book is so different from The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.  In the 10 years between … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain (With a New Introduction by Shelley Fisher Fishkin) – Huck Finn

BOOK REVIEW: The Light In The Darkness: A Titanic Novel, Book One (Parts I-III) by Carla Robinson

Once upon a time, I was halfway through a review on The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain.  Then, Covid-19 hit.  Now, I honestly can’t remember what day of the week it is – let alone a book I was talking about on March 3rd of this year.  Even … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Light In The Darkness: A Titanic Novel, Book One (Parts I-III) by Carla Robinson
